V-MODA has been kinda quiet for a while. Their headphones are still popular, but now V-MODA has entered the wireless world with the Crossfade Wireless Over-Ear headphone. V-MODA states that they worked years to get the wireless sound equal to analog (wired) with no compromises. Their dual-diaphragm 50mm driver is a refined version of the one used in the Crossfade M-100 reviewed in 2013. The goal of the Crossfade Wireless is to keep that signature V-MODA sound while losing the wires.
“As an avid analog purist, for years I said I would not make a wireless headphone; instead, we decided to make our best over-ear wired headphone yet featuring the best wireless mode,” says Val Kolton, CEO of V-MODA. “After years of R&D, we can proudly say that Crossfade Wireless is versatile enough to be the everyday audio weapon of choice for music professionals, audiophiles, gamers and savvy consumers, alike.”
While the Crossfade Wireless works with all Bluetooth devices, the antenna is specially tuned to work with smartwatches’ built-in Bluetooth. V-MODA tested and tuned the antenna for smartwatches using nearly every Apple and Android watch on the market. The Crossfade Wireless maintains the combination of steel, metal and vegan leather at military-level standards of testing guidelines.
The rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides up to 12 hours of continuous music with unlimited hours in wired mode since that uses no electronics. A V-Micro USB recharging cable is included.
The new V-MODA Crossfade Wireless will be available in four colors: Gunmetal Black, White Silver, Rouge and Phantom Chrome. It will be available in early October and sell for $300 U.S. Visit www.v-moda.com for more information.
